Leerdoelen After completing this course the student will:
1. to be able to calculate equilibrium calculations for various (multiple) reactions
2. be able to derive a rate equation from a proposed molecular mechanism in homogeneous (particularly bio catalysis) and heterogeneous catalysis
3. to perform numerical calculation on combined mass transfer and reaction for (heterogeneous) catalysts
4. to perform reactor engineering calculations on various chemical processes using catalysis
5. To describe and understand the process lay-out of a number of representative bulk chemical processes
Omschrijving The course provides the student with (applied) knowledge on catalytic processes in the chemical industry, with an emphasis on bulk chemicals. The focus is on processes involving heterogeneous and biocatalysts.
